Modular buildings and design – an ingenious case study

John_LucchettiModular design offers significant cost and times savings on building design and construction. At the upcoming Modular Construction & Prefabrication Summit on 25-26 August 2015, WGE’s Hydraulic Section Manager John Lucchetti is discussing a specific modular case study, the Bendigo Hospital Hotel.

The Bendigo Hospital Hotel project provides a 66 hotel rooms of modular construction sitting on a conventional constructed podium level. The impressive structure has incorporated modular design capabilities with ingenious engineering skills to deliver the desired hotel modules.

See for yourself just how quickly Bendigo Hospital Hotel came together with modular design in the time-lapse video.

In the Day 1 session, ‘Bendigo Hospital Hotel – Reusing, Reselling and Redeploying Modular Buildings and Design Features’, John will examine:

  • The use of prefabricated modules to fully integrate and enhance existing in-situ structures
  • Using technological advances such as BIM to create better opportunities to transform and innovate a construction projects life cycle
  • How to greatly reduce site time through design refinement
  • Building sustainable design into the fabric of modular construction

John is the Hydraulics Section Manager in WGE’s Melbourne office, leading a team of 16 people.
